Located in the town of Piglio, about thirty miles east of Rome, Cousins Daniele and Pierluca Proietti named their winery after the ancient Roman road that links their territory with Abruzzo. To say that viticulture in the town of Piglio has a long history would be an understatement, Many of Abbia Nova’s Cru vineyards date back 2,000 years to Roman times and the wines from these sites have graced the lips of Emperors and Popes alike.
A little over 18 acres of indigenous varieties are farmed sustainably, incorporating Fukuoka methods with elements of biodynamics and homeopathic remedies, all designed to give energy to the vines by fostering the fertility of the soil and the plants roots.
‘Senza Vandalismi’, meaning without vandalism, tells you everything: you need to know about the wines of Abbia Nova, nothing added but a touch of sulphur . For Daniele and Pierluca the “ancient way” is certainly the “new way.”
